I\'m not dead yet


Well as you can see the NFL still has some life left in her. I pulled a nice matching set of Chrome hens out last night after work. Fishing my TRT 1143 and 8# test it took awhile to land them. That's what I get for gearing down for Coho :wink:

8lb test, eh? Did you hold your breath the whole time? It sure ups the satisfaction when you land one that would have been gone in a second if the drag, rod tip, and fisherman hadn't all been doing their part. Pretty fun stuff.

:cheers:

Re: I\'m not dead yet

Yeah, the first one took about 30 min and I was nervous the whole time. I took my time with her because She came to the surface to do her headshakes and I knew she was bright from the get go. By the time she was slipped in the net my leader was frayed to snot and barely holding :shocked: .

The second one I was less ginger with because she didn't show herself and I was losing light as the fight went on. The hook was in a fleshy part of the jaw and had almost pulled loose by the time I beached her. That second one made some scorcher runs. I thought she was a goner several times. But the Roybuilt rod did a fantastic job of absorbing everything she had to offer.
